Local couple to be on ‘Fox and Friends’ live broadcast Friday
NATCHEZ — Two local faces will be among friends Friday morning when they make their debut on national television.
Local businessman Marc Archer and his wife Tana will be sitting in the live studio audience of the “Fox and Friends,” the morning news show on Fox News.
“We were selected to be part of the studio panel,” Archer said.
Archer said his wife applied online a month ago to be part of the panel.
For the first time in its 20-year history, “Fox and Friends” hosted a live studio audience in January.
“They had made the comment on one of the shows that they had such a great response from the first show that they wanted to do another,” Archer said. “They wanted people from diverse areas of the country.”
“I told my wife they would love to get some rednecks from Louisiana,” Archer said.
Jokes aside, Archer said he and Tana are excited to be going to New York City to be a part of the broadcast.
“She loves Fox and Friends. She is pumped up,” Archer said.
Although he too is excited about the opportunity, Archer said he is also a little nervous.
“I am scared to death,” Archer said.
Archer said he had been told by producers to expect the live discussion to include a wide range of issues, from politics and the economy to foreign policy and immigration.
Archer said he might not be an expert at any of those topics, but like everybody, he has his opinions.
Sharing those opinions on national television, Archer said, is a little different than sharing them with friends and family at home.
“It is a little harder to express your opinions in front of millions of people on television,” Archer said.
The couple will leave Vidalia on Thursday and will spend the night in New York before having to be at the studio at 4 a.m., Archer said.
The program will be broadcast live from 5 to 8 a.m. Central Time, Archer said.
After the broadcast, Archer said he and his wife plan to spend some time touring the city — including stops at the 9/11 memorial, Times Square, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park.
“I call it the normal tourist trap kind of things,” Archer said.
